Agirretxe happy to continue at La Real

Shortly after tying down defender Jon Ansotegi on a one-year contract extension, Real Sociedad de Fútbol have agreed a deal with forward Imanol Agirretxe until June 2018.

Real Sociedad de Fútbol forward Imanol Agirretxe said he was keen to "live some more very special years" with the Basque outfit after signing a new three-year deal.

Involved in all four of the Txuri-urdin's UEFA Champions League group stage matches this season, Agirretxe – who is one game short of 100 appearances in the Spanish top flight – is thrilled to be remaining at his boyhood club until June 2018.

"This is where I want to be so I am very happy," he said. "Time passes so fast and you continue racking up important figures [in your career]." Agirretxe has scored 42 goals in 165 first and second division outings for La Real since making his debut in 2005.

Jagoba Arrasate's side – bottom of UEFA Champions League Group A with one point – travel to FC Shakhtar Donetsk on 27 November before concluding their campaign at home to Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 10 December.
